Default Google Must Pay $660k For Offering Google Maps For Free

Who knew that offering Google Maps for free was an unfair and abusive practice? A Paris Court earlier this week ordered Google France and its parent company Google to pay plaintiff Bottin Cartographes 500,000 euros (about $660,000) for providing its free mapping services to businesses across the country. The court also required Google to pay a 15,000 euro fine for its practice.
